The nature of growing a business from the ground up means that there are lots of twists and turns along the way – unanticipated roadblocks and unexpected opportunities. 2019 started strongly for the Art of Procurement team, built on the foundation of our brand consolidation. I believe that the announcement we made earlier today immediately takes us to the next level.
If you missed the press release, I announced that Zeteo Global – led by Mark Pollack and Elijah Condellone – has joined forces with my team and I at Art of Procurement.
Mark and Elijah Co-Founded Zeteo Global in early 2019 to focus on innovative talent development, paying specific attention on the future of leadership, procurement and sales processes. With today’s announcement, the Zeteo Global brand will remain for our combined entities to support clients outside of procurement. However, all procurement-facing activities will take place under the Art of Procurement brand.
This immediately strengthens our ability to inspire, prepare and enable procurement teams on their maturity journey. Where my team and I bring procurement knowledge and multi-channel content expertise, Mark and Elijah excel in sales, business development, strategy, and program development. Aligning our diverse strengths behind a singular vision for the future of procurement will allow us to strategically focus our resources and significantly extend our reach.
One of the lessons I have learned since I began Art of Procurement is the importance of culture. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing both Mark and Elijah personally for a number of years. As soon I became aware that Mark and Elijah were about to begin their own entrepreneurial journey, I sought ways to collaborate with them. What started as a discussion to share networking opportunities culminated in today’s announcement.
I’m excited by what’s to come: offerings that will empower procurement professionals in new ways by harnessing the power of our community.
Welcome to Art of Procurement Mark and Elijah!
